This thread probably belongs in the political forum but this forum covers a large variety of discussion so I will try here. The question is, what are the realistic chances of gun confiscation in the US ? I know no one has a crystal ball but I still think of this question every time I see someone post about a new firearm purchase. It makes me wonder if people are throwing money away with each purchase. Would the feds come door to door and confiscate based off the paperwork at gun stores ? Would local governments enforce ? Would all heck break out ? I know something needs to be done about all the mass shootings but also know that they could very well increase if criminals, mentally unstable loners and terrorist organizations, just to name a few, know that everyone is unarmed and not able to fight back. I'm also a true believer that if someone wants to kill, not having access to a firearm will not stop them. People need to take this threat as a real threat. I don't think it's too far fetched. Any thoughts ?
